Some system information:
OS: Fedora 32, Linux 5.8.15
Driver version: 455.28
Hardware: Lenovo P1

Problem description:
When booting up the P1 while connected to the Thunderbolt 3 dock (with one external monitor connected to it) the screens stay black and the kernel log contains the following page faults:

Available workarounds:

  • Disable the nvidia module and switch to nouveau
  • Disconnect the dock and connect it after GNOME session login (connecting it at the login screen triggers the same page faults and no graphical output will be visible)

This worked in the past. I guess with Linux 5.8.10 and older. The oldest kernel I was able to try was 5.8.13 which still had this problem.
